Oil and Gas Translation Services

Oil and gas is one of the key industries for Russia. There is a great number of companies that cooperate extensively with their foreign business partners. Such cooperation requires profound knowledge of translators not only in this highly specialized niche, but also in the related areas because such cooperation always involves disagreements, conflicts and legal disputes. Incompetence of translators in the oil and gas sector may result in multi-million dollar losses, and therefore, accurate and adequate oil and gas translation is of crucial importance.

Questions about oil and gas translation services


Do you perform notary certified translation?


Yes, we do. We affix an Apostille – a special mark certifying the authenticity of the signature, the capacity in which the person signing the document acted, as well as, in some cases, the identity of a stamp or seal affixed to the document. In notary certified translation, a translator put his/her signature under the text in the document, then the signature is certified by a notary public. The cost of the notary certified translation includes translation and copying of your documents. Notary public services are paid separately.

We value the trust of our customers, that is why we engage only qualified translators, many of whom are educated in technical, legal or economic fields in addition to their linguistic education. Thorough proficiency in a translation area as well as professional knowledge of terminology are the best guarantee of high-quality translations. Moreover, translation quality is controlled by our project managers, who carefully check every translation before sending it to the customer. Upon customers' request we also provide such service as proofreading by native speakers. In addition, we are always available to enter into service contract with our clients with all the important points relating to quality assurance specified therein.

Do you use programs for machine-assisted (automatic) translation?


By no means. Current state of translation software does not allow to ensure any acceptable translation quality. Moreover – it is much easier to translate a text from scratch than to edit it after machine translators. As of today, professional translators are the only option. Only professionally translated text will meet all quality criteria, the most important of which are: adequate rendering of sense, proper terminology as well as preservation of cultural and social nuances of source text.

How quickly can you translate documents?


We can translate small documents within a working day. Extra urgent orders – within 1-2 hours.
